CANNES 2016

Canne’s Film Festival has kicked off in France this week and it is all about the fashion.

Each red carpet event brings a new look for celebrities and fashion insiders, it provides them an opportunity to show off a style they couldn’t in their every day life and it gives the viewers something to lust over and a chance to dream.

The general public is fascinated with who wore what and we as fashion lovers, live for moments like these, those who dare to dream with fashion and take a dream of a designer and give it life.

Here are some of our favourite looks, bold, classic and just plain fashionable.

VINTAGE LEVI’S

Spring is now in full swing and summer is just around the corner! Although, autumn is my favorite season I look forward to the crop tops and gladiator sandals that spring and summer have to offer!

And, since I am speaking about favorite things another one of them is doing photoshoots at night. My nights out are usually the times I fully dress up the most so, I do most of my blog shoots at night if you haven’t noticed by now. When G and I began this amazing blog of ours my shoots were mainly all in the evening and it was because it was the best time for me to fully dress up since work had me fully booked from 8 to 5. But, then I started to really like the way my shoots were coming out at night. The lighting, the mystery of what the night will hold really enticed me and thus became my favorite type of shoot to do. With that said now, I’ll talk about what I wore and one of my nightly outings!

So, another thing  I am in love with right now are a pair of vintage Levi’s that I found at a thrift store and simply can’t get enough of them. I have worn them in every way possible: day, night, short, long, inside out… you get the picture. This time I thought I’d wear them in a fun, sexy way. Everyone calls these types of jeans the “mom” jeans and I beg to differ because they can be styled in so many cool ways and my goal is to show you.

I had recently purchased this knitted mustard yellow tank top at Love Culture and thought the two colors (the vintage Levi’s and the tank top) went perfectly. For some reason the mustard yellow color screams vintage always to me. I also, wanted some type of chunky heel to balance the whole outfit together since I was starting off slimmer on the top and the bottom was going to be a little puffed out due to how “mom” jeans look rolled up. So, I wanted to keep the look flowing by pairing it with a pair of taupe platform heels by Steve Madden. Put any type of platform heel on and you’ll automatically feel like you’re heading to a disco which to me is an amazing feeling. Last I topped it off with another vintage find of mine an ivory blazer for the chilly end of the night and BAM just like that I felt sexy and cool in my vintage Levi’  “mom” jeans. GASP.

CHINA BLOGGER FEATURE

We have just started a new feature on our blog, where we will be interviewing bloggers from all around the world.

A different month will bring you a different country.

We are so excited about launching this,  for it incorporates both our love of fashion & travel and what better way to see the world (through a screen) than from a bloggers point of view.

For our first month, April we have decided to focus on China as it the start of their Shanghai Fashion Festival, located on the central coast, Shanghai is China’s biggest city and global financial hub – definitely just got added to our bucket lists.

We are proud to introduce China Fashion Bloggers who have been kind enough to give us a little insight in to their fashion world! They have recently added a new Designer Feature showcasing Runway Photos and a Bloggers‘ page which shows all the contributing bloggers that make CFB possible!

See the interview below

Describe the blogging community in China?

Blogging in China is still relatively new. A lot of people call themselves bloggers as a sort of “catch all” phrase for KOLs, influencers, or celebrities that don’t have a specific profession like acting or singing… this has diluted the term, and the idea of a blogger is even further diluted by platforms like Weibo. Weibo is a microblogging service, so many people see themselves as bloggers, which is both good and bad.

Anyway can blog in China, and a lot of more independent and forward-thinking individuals have already jumped on board… but the number of high-quality bloggers in China right now are few and far between. CFB strives to identify the best blogging talent and put them all in one place, to foster a community of like-minded individuals with different perspectives. Unfortunately a lot of people don’t understand bloggers or think it is a nasty word for people with questionable working status and morals, but bloggers have a lot to offer not only the fashion community in China but society at large.

Unfortunately a lot of blogging platforms need a VPN to access in China, so there may be a couple of very famous bloggers but the community as a whole is still in its very early stages

How would you describe China Fashion Bloggers and your style?

CFB is the perfect bridge between designers, retailers, and consumers in China. We offer a lot of different perspectives and styles. The style of the site is clean and minimal, as we choose to put the spotlight on our bloggers’ content as opposed to the design of the site itself.

In terms of my personal style, I like things that are obscure, ethnic, and different. It’s a reflection of me as a mud-blood, being both Korean and American. I like mixing ideas and patterns and proportions to create something new.

Best places to shop in China?

MHT, Triple Major, Autumn Sonata, Alter, Dong Liang, Lane Crawford, 10 Corso Como

China’s best kept travel secret?

Street food. Most people are afraid of it, but you should definitely try everything (except for maybe the meat products)… it’s cheap but better than a lot of fancy places in China.

LIFOU

At our first stop, we disembarked into the tranquil and secluded Lifou.

We spent the day exploring the streets of the island, which were lined with palm and frangipani trees and kayaking to the more unexplored turfs by ocean.

We made our way around the island in our vehicle of choice the Kayak, and uncovered a secluded beach.

There’s no feeling quite like it than being on your own little beach and although you are only walking distance back to the hut where they hired out the Kayaks, you felt isolated and the serenity was captivating, it makes you really feel the island and get a taste of what it would be like to be completely dependent on the islands natural resources and detached from the wide web of the world.

But then how we would get all our fashion inspiration.

For a day packed of exploring I wanted to make sure I was practical and what better practicality is there than a cute red one piece (aside from when you need to go to the toilet and of course the tan lines) but all for the sake of fashion.  Teamed with every girl’s island staple – ripped jean shorts and I was set.

If you are still not convinced on cruises – think of the destinations you get to visit that may not be on your radar and maybe my next and final post will sway your judgement.

Until then, stay fashionable

If you were wondering why we were a bit MIA, I was sailing the Pacific Ocean, Island hopping from Vanuatu to New Caledonia and Alexis has been busing working on something special and top secret!

We spent 7 nights on board the P&O Pacifc Dawn and travelled to, two Islands; Lifou & Pt Villa.
When we were just cruising at Sea, we were never at a loss of things to do., with all the entertainment on board, we struggled to fit in time to work on our tans (hence why there isn’t really one).

This has been my fourth Cruise, and I still never get sick of them, they are the ideal holiday for singles, couples, families and solo travellers, there truly is something for everyone on board and the best thing about it is they take you around the world, getting to visit places you may never have thought to travel to.

So here is a snippet of my time on board, wearing one of my favourite Seafolly Bikini’s and Iconic Cover up, teamed with the classic boat hat from Sportsgirl.

Make sure you check back because I still have a few more posts to share with you.
